The Determination of the Need to Revise the AGDEX Filing System and Its Market Potential.
Forty-six secondary school vocational agricultural teachers from eight states were surveyed to determine the need for revising the AGDEX filing system (which is used primarily for filing curriculum materials), the extent of revision needed, and the market potential for a revised edition. The data from thirty-one respondents were analyzed by using frequency counts and percentages. Eighteen AGDEX users were identified, with 55% of them teaching in the area of production agriculture. Of the eighteen users, ten use it for both curriculum materials and audio-visual materials, six for curriculum materials only, and two for audio-visual materials only. The users appear generally quite pleased with the AGDEX system. Sixty-four and one-half percent of all the respondents indicated a willingness to purchase a revised coding manual, while only 55.6 percent of the users were willing to make the purchase.
